FRIC research result webinar: Guideline – Fire resistance upgrade of cultural heritage doors
This webinar will present the results from a study of fire resistance upgrade of cultural heritage doors.

The research has been carried out as part of WP 3.1.5 Solutions for protection of cultural heritage escape route doors in FRIC

Anne-Marit Haukø, SINTEF, Barbro Wedvik, NIKU, Mikael Bergius, RISE Fire Research

Older wooden doors can be one of the weaker points with regards to fire resistance in apartment buildings. This guideline proposes how glass, protective boards, sealing lists, hardware and door frames can be mounted to the door to be expected to achieve a fire resistance of approximately 30 minutes (as if the door would be fire resistance tested). The guideline is based on new research from fire testing.

Eldre tredører er ofte et svakt ledd når det gjelder brannsikkerheten i bygårder og leilighetsbygg. Denne veilederen angir hvordan glass, beskyttende plater, tetningslister, jernvare og dørkarmer kan monteres slik at døren oppnår en brannmotstand tilnærmet 30 minutter (som om døren var blitt testet for brannmotstand). Veilederen er basert på ny forskning fra brannprøving.

The webinar is free, open for all and will be held in English.

The webinar will start with a presentation of the results from the project, about 25 minutes, and will be followed by about 5-10 minutes for questions and discussions with the researchers. You are welcome to ask questions in English or in a Scandinavian language.

The webinar will be recorded and published.

FRIC partners involved have been SINTEF, NIKU, RISE Fire Research and TBRT.
